We are a young start-up consisting of two dynamic and motivated guys - Pascal and Oli. Our goal is to make the cooking utensils of traditional and authentic cuisine accessible to you.
How it all started ...
Two friends with an idea.
Close your eyes and get into independence.
Put everything on one card and off you go.
This is roughly how our adventure started in August 2019.
Not only once have we looked into puzzled faces, not only once have we heard the question(s) "Woks? Really?".
Our answer was always the same: “Yes, woks! Really!".
We were up for it and were, or are, convinced of ourselves and our idea, consequently we did not allow ourselves to be dissuaded from our path.
Step by step...
We stumbled upon our wok and were immediately hooked. It quickly became clear to us that we didn't want to withhold this wok from you. We decided to found a company together and make a traditional hand-hammered wok made of real carbon steel available to you.
#business registration # start-up
To do this, we first founded a company - pasoli was officially born. And believe us, it is not that easy to find a good brand name. But as we find, pasoli is (Pascal &Oliver) very successful.
The next step was negotiating and organizing with our Chinese partner for production. Everything clarified, the first order was placed in the same month.
The first 1.008 woks arrived in a total of 84 boxes and sales via Amazon could begin (on December 20, 2019 to be precise).
#hype # number1new releases
After just one month, all expectations were exceeded. You really made us speechless by the rush for our woks. On Amazon we were officially listed as # 1 of the new releases in the woks category:https://www.instagram.com/p/B6_edzxhPKJ/
We had to think about reordering faster than expected and we ordered a further 3.000 woks in China, which will arrive in May.
Our woks have already been sent to 15 countries - what a success. Time to open the second sales channel besides Amazon - eBay.
Other minor improvements as well as preparations for major optimizations have been carried out. For example, the homepage has been expanded to include delicious recipe ideas from our chef Mane.

We're sold out. The first 1.000 woks have been sold. The next delivery arrived just in time so that we could continue to offer you our wok. We also have our social media presence with ourpasoli Facebook pageexpanded and gained the first 100 subscribers almost overnight.
Half a year after the start on Amazon and only 3 months after the eBay premiere, we set up our own web shop, which can be reached both on our homepage and on our Facebook page.
Exactly one year after the founding, we brought the second product onto the market - the already branded wok.
Our first homepage was good for the start, but now it was time to take the next step and prettify and professionalize the homepage.
Exactly one year after the launch of the first product, we were able to bring our third product, the round burnt-in wok, onto the market.
We decided to turn away from the eBay sales channel in order to be able to concentrate even more on Amazon and, above all, our own web shop.
The time has come. Our damask knives are finally here. For a long time we thought about what the "next step" would be for pasoli. We discussed many ideas, discarded them, redefined them and can now proudly present our new pasoli damask knives! Super sharp knives with the typical, beautiful grain of a Damascus blade and the whole thing is completed by a noble wooden handle.

After visiting our friends Oli and Sandy on the sailing ship in Panama for a good two weeks in the summer, we came back full of energy. The matching cutting boards made of sturdy oak, suitable for our damask knives, are now in the range. Black Friday was also a great success.
With Otto, we have opened up a new marketplace to give you another opportunity to enjoy our pasoli products.
It was now time to change the company name from a GbR to a GmbH. Unfortunately, the whole process took a long time due to the German bureaucracy, but we made it - we are now a GmbH.
to be continued ...
We have big plans! Join us on our trip and check back regularly!
